Report: Illegal Immigration Grew by One Million in Biden’s First Year, Costing Taxpayers $9.4 Billion

Report: Illegal Immigration Grew by One Million in Biden’s First Year, Costing Taxpayers $9.4 Billion

Ending Title 42 will worsen the situation.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) revealed that America saw illegal immigration increase “by approximately a million” during President Joe Biden’s first year.

The increase costs taxpayers “an additional $9.4 billion.”

States with the most illegal immigrants:

  • California: 3.3 million
  • Texas: 2.2 million
  • Florida: 1.2 million
  • New York: 1.1 million

States with the fewest illegal immigrants:

  • North Dakota: 6,000
  • West Virginia: 6,000

Fox News Digital received a copy of the report:

The study estimates that there are approximately 15.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, up from 14.5 million in 2020. Other estimates have typically put that number at around 11 million for years, but immigration hawks have expressed skepticism that the number has stayed flat given the increased activity at the border.

FAIR’s analysis also conducted a fiscal cost study, finding that illegal immigrants are imposing a net fiscal burden of at least $143.1 billion – an increase of $9.4 billion over 2020.

The group puts the increase in population down to two factors – the first being the improvement of the U.S. economy as it re-opens after COVID-19.

“Businesses are once again hiring, and many unscrupulous employers are using this as an opportunity to turn to reliably cheap labor to undercut the market and make up for lost profits resulting from economic shutdowns stemming from the pandemic,” the report says. “These unethical hiring practices occur even though millions of Americans remain unemployed or underemployed.”

Biden’s policies also led to the surge in immigration since officials dismantled many of President Donald Trump’s immigration plans. Biden is already trying to end Title 42:

The second factor is the policies of the administration, which rolled back a number of Trump-era border policies and narrowed the scope of interior enforcement. FAIR claims that Biden “has effectively abolished the mission of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), preventing the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) from securing our southern border, and implementing measures that encourage mass illegal immigration.”

The report points to the narrowed interior enforcement, the ending of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), ending of border wall construction, continued designations of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and promising amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the country as part of an immigration reform proposal.

“President Biden and the people he appointed to key positions in his administration have pursued the most radical open-borders policies in the history of any sovereign nation, and these new numbers bear that out,” FAIR President Dan Stein said in a statement accompanying the report. “If not for the COVID pandemic, which forced the administration to keep Title 42 in place last year, the additional influx and costs to American taxpayers would have been far greater.”

The Trump administration implemented Title 42 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to limit illegal immigration.

Biden wants to get rid of it. Fox Business learned at the end of March that DHS started to brace for over 500,000 migrants once the administration lifted Title 42.

One agent told Fox Business, “We are expecting to get wrecked.”

Vulnerable Democrats do not want Biden to get rid of Title 42. 21 states sued the administration over it. Even President Barack Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson came out against repealing Title 42. He knows Americans want the government to secure the border and pointed out that the border cannot handle the surge:

“Seven thousand a day is not sustainable in multiple respects,” Johnson stated. “It overwhelms the Border Patrol and ICE and their ability to keep up with these numbers, and obviously, it overwhelms the Biden administration politically.”

A federal judge said he will grant a Temporary Restraining Order after the states sued the administration. The states asked for the TRO because “the government already was failing to apply Title 42 so a TRO was needed to preserve the status quo while the Court considered a previously filed Motion for a Preliminary Injunction.”

The reality is that this is our own doing to ourselves.

Also, don’t blame the left on this either- the reason this is and has been happening is the RINO. (They want it as much or more than the left but for a different reason)

Just like election theft, the left COULD NOT SUCCEED without direct assistance and cover by the RINO’s. (If they were that “all powerful” by themselves, they would have taken over by now and don’t think thats not their end goal)

All of this and more coming is simply not going to even slow down ( much less end) until “WE” get rid of the RINO.

Anything short of that is just a complete failure at a slower speed.

That’s just the plain simple truth.

    Exactly. The continuance of this process is not possible without the willing participation of many r office holders with a wink and a nod to their donors from the chamber of commerce. Aided by a ideologically corrupt, activist bureaucracy who resist any effort to enforce current law and a host of charities and NGOs, who despite their non profit status, rake in tens of millions in Federal Contracts.

    The point is all our institutions have been captured by vested interests with a financial interest in continuing to import people. Some to acquire cheap labor, some to create a transformation of the Nations demographics, some out of a misguided interpretation of scripture but all of these act because they have an economic inducement to do so.

    Amen.
    I would also believe the figure of illegals entering since Biden’s inauguration to be much closer to 2 million, if not more.

They must ALL be rounded up and sent back… no more fake tears

This has to end…

Well that Delaware’s population might increase in direct proportion to Obamigration and every damned new “American” have the name Biden hyphenated to their name.

There needs to be a concerted effort by American Patriots to identify and call out publicly any business that hires these people. Boycott and picket them. Make it loud. Force the news to cover protests around these businesses. Without jobs, many will leave.

    uh a lot of them have “jobs” of trafficking humans and drugs across the border….those don’t show up on payrolls.

    No, even though that “sounds good”- its a total waste of energy that will never accomplish anything except keep things as they are. It will actually work against us. Here’s why:

    The businesses don’t care because they know nobody can organize enough for a “boycott” to have a damaging effect plus they know the media will blunt the bad press since immigration is a left agenda item.

    The “under the table” damage they are causing wouldn’t be affected ( most likely increase even) even if point 1 above worked.

    Then if we magically got them out of the workforce- they sit there and collect tax money (Cloward Piven) because they are still here.

    So, this concept of “self deportation” ( a Mittens Fantasy) is just that- a fantasy because there is incentive to stay even without “jobs”.

    The ONLY hope is to cull the RINO and install actual MAGA candidates at the State and Federal level who will actually ENFORCE CURRENT LAWS.

    Don’t believe the “big lie”. The US Immigration system is NOT “broken” and it never was nor will be. It works just fine as it always has been. (I challenge anyone to show exactly what’s “broke” by statute or policy number)

    That’s the big “lie” because it WORKS but that working ( protecting US jobs and incomes) is DIRECTLY AGAINST the parallel agendas of the Left and the RINO so they mutually created the “lie” ( by shared agreement) that the system is “broke” to build in the excuse not to enforce it and then to “fix” it.

    Again, to address the root cause at the lowest level- elect MAGA candidates at the S&F level that will actually enforce current law. Anything short of that has already failed before its even tried.

My fear is we are stuck with every one of them, neither party will do anything to deport them in the future.
And that’s 15.5 million Democrat voters.

There are more than 15.5 million illegals here. They have been using those numbers for 25 years. We have invaders spewing into our country that we have NO clue who they are, yet they continue to treat American citizens like criminals.

West Virginia would have over a million illegals were it not for its permissive hunting regulations.

The Bush family and the U.S Chamber of Commerce share responsibility for this fiasco. If this is not impeachable, what is?

And Gov Abbott sending them to DC was a joke.
Why did the just send them all back??!!!!

The cost is not just $9.4 billion, but probably $9.4 billion per year. Also, how is that determined? For example, does it include local education costs, which are high for an uneducated, non-English speaking child? Also, does the one million include the hundreds of thousands of “getaways”?
